Catch a falling star
I do not think so. These fragments from the meteor that fell here in Namibia many moons ago are solid silver. Imagine how heavy that star must have been!
One of the most visited and photographed placed in Windhoek. Going up Peter Müller Strasse from Independence you will find this Christuskirche
In the main street you will find this massive bronze statue of a kudu. I tried to find out what was the reason for it, but was not able to.
Situated on the hill of Windhoek you will find this beautifull park with some statues of famous Namibian people.
Peter Muller street.
In this street that begins in the Crhistuskirche church, you can find the nice Zoo park ( for relax), and some good handicrafts stalls.
Post street Mall.
This is a nice place to hang out, shops, restaurants and some handicrafts stalls, it´s the heart of downtown Windhoek.
Fidel Castro street.
I liked the name of this street, it´s located near the Peter Muller street, but in the maps it appears with the name of Luderitz street.
The Old Fort.
It was the headquarters of the first Schutztruppe who arrives to Namibia in 1889, and is the Windhoek´s oldest surviving building. It has some interesting exhibitions of the history of the country.
Is the national history museum, with some exhibitions of traditional village life. It was interesting to find a Guatemalan coffee sac in one of the displays.
In Post Mall Street, you can see meteorites from the Gibeon meteorite shower (more than 21 tonnes crashed on earth in Gibeon, southern Namibia)
This is an example of middle-class house. On some of them, you can still see on the front door the letter indicating the tribe before the number : H for Herero, D for Damara, S for San etc.
